This function is disabled when the IP address is set to the default value of 0.0.0.0. To enable this function change 0.0.0.0 to a valid IP address.

If set to 255.255.255.255, then all the hosts can access the Router from internet.

Note:
1. To access the Tp-Link Router, you should type your Tp-Link Router’s WAN IP address into your browser’s address (in IE) or Location (in Navigator) box, followed by a colon and the custom port number.
